My company uses a proprietary software program that works through Internet Explorer. Recently, the IT department has made a change to the software to keep Internet Explorer locked to cover the entire screen (but not necessarily in "full screen" mode), with no ability to resize it. For the department I run it is very important to be able to resize these windows so that you can have multiple views of Internet Explorer showing at once. In order to combat this, in Internet Explorer 7.0.5730.11 I simply instructed my employees to use the "F11" key to jump Internet Explorer into "full screen" mode, then press it once again to get it out of "full screen" mode. After this they were able to resize the window.
Recently they have upgraded some of the systems to Internet Explorer 7.0.6001.18000, and for some reason my work around does not allow users on this version to resize the window. The "F11" trick still puts the window into full screen mode, and takes it back out, of course, but it does not give them the ability to resize the window.
Any suggestions on how I could fix this, or any suggestions on other potential work arounds to get the window to be able to resize in the newer version? Perhaps tricks you have found resizing internet windows that lock the ability? I have verified that none of the settings have changed between the older and newer versions.
